Some of you (especially those who do not follow our Twitter or Facebook) may be mystified by the lack of updates and general radio silence, when this blog generally doesn’t shut up. However, since we are in the process of going self-hosted and readying a special birthday surprise (that was meant to happen on our first blog birthday, but who’s counting?) we have been a little… tied up. Unfortunately, we’re not quite sure when the self-hosted stuff will be wrapped up, and it’s been taking some time. I’m not even going to blame Mercury retrograde for it, we just have a special talent for setting the internet on fire. Well… while we’re getting everything nice and ready so we can all celebrate our birthday properly (and trust me, you are all going to like it very much) I thought I’d make a nice little post for you guys. This post serves two purposes – one, to reassure everyone that we are not yet dead, and two, to compile all our geeky and nerdy and awesome holiday posts from last year in one helpful place. We’ve noticed an increase of views in our last year’s gift guides and whatnot, and while we will be making new ones for this year, the last year’s might come in quite helpful too. So umm… enjoy?
In celebration of the end of 2012, we’re reviewing our favorite pop culture moments in the only socially acceptable format – GIFs. We feel it is appropriate to title 2012 as being the Year of the Fall, because of reasons. Many reasons. Many tear-inducing reasons. Read on to find out what made our
gaydar radar beep.
WARNING – May contain spoilers for Doctor Who, Sherlock, and basically the whole year. (#2012Spoilers)

We’ve all had that moment where we’ve heard the Mariah Carey song “All I Want for Christmas is You” and thought longingly of some unrequited crush. We’ve all also had that moment where we imagine Bellatrix Lestrange singing the song about Lord Voldemort. Oh? You haven’t?
Awkward. Luckily, we had that thought for you! Consider this our Christmas present to all of you. Continue reading
I think it is Christmas Eve, Harry… And it just so happens, it falls on a Monday. Here is our gift for you today – an old holiday favorite to sing while you’re stringing up lights, hanging car fresheners on your tree, spiking your eggnogg and wrapping each other gifts of Busty Asian Beauties and shaving cream. There is no better way to celebrate than by singing this while dramatically posing on top of your Impala… so what are you waiting for?
It is a truth universally acknowledged that most people who read this blog are probably shopping for holiday presents for their families at this very moment. Now, some of you probably have friends who are huge Jane Austen geeks – we here at 3 Chic Geeks certainly are! Jane Austen was the mother of the modern romance novel, and created strong, intelligent heroines that we love to read about time and time again. Not to mention, she was born on December 16th. All in all, we have gathered some of our favorite Jane Austen-themed objects in this handy gift guide. It’s perfect for last-minute holiday shopping AND for drooling over things you desire (with us, it is a little bit of both).
Hanukkah is here, Christmas is less than two weeks away, and all of us at 3 Chic Geeks are in the mood to sing some corny holiday songs. However, we thought we’d change them up a bit, just for kicks. Grab the nearest microphone, hairbrush, umbrella, or consulting detective and sing along to some of your favorite holiday songs, Sherlock style.
When I think about Christmas, I often find myself thinking about Harry Potter and the annual movie marathons on ABC Family
and the terrible crying jags I go on when I hear Hedwig’s Theme. Harry Potter is my original fandom and probably the one I’m most fanatically attached to so why shouldn’t every aspect of my life reflect that in some way? This, of course, includes my Christmas Tree.
While the Harry Potter books and film franchise may have come to an end, Pottermania is far from over. In fact, the Harry Potter fandom continues to be one of, if not the, most prominent online and around the world. Being proud Potterheads ourselves here at 3 Chic Geeks, a gift guide inspired by the wizarding world was an absolute must. Need help buying for the witch, wizard, muggle or squib in your life (or looking for some new gear yourself)? Then we’ve got the list for you!
